carbonates from nitrates
« on: August 09, 2005, 09:44:01 PM »
Need to make carbonates from nitrate salts of metals(Ca, K,Na).  Should I just bubble CO2 gas trough a sintered glass tube  below the surface of the solution? Will it turn into a "rock" and if so, how to prevent? By Constant swirling? Thanks!

bubbling carbon dioxide will not convert the nitrate salts to carbonates.

introducing carbonate solution to aq. calcium nitrate will produce calcium carbonate.

however. potassium carbonate and sodium carbonate are water-soluble. they will not be precipitated in aqueous system.

do you have any suggestions for which carbonates I should use without contaminating the calcium solution? Thank you

what do you mean by "contaminating the calcium solution"? please clarify.
